D23 was filled with all kinds of amazing news. A lot of it having to do with Disney’s latest acquisition of Star Wars. Well now it’s time for the fans of the long awaited Kingdom Hears 3 to have their moment in the sunshine at the D23 Japan Expo!
E3 showed us the title with some gameplay, it was confirmed that KH3 will have a Big Hero 6 world at D23 in Anaheim, and it will be the first Kingdom Hearts available on a Microsoft platform, but other than that there hasn’t been much about the game that has been nearly 10 years in development, not even a projected release date.
The Kingdom Hearts Premium Theater Event at D23 Japan Expo will presumably change some of that with interviews with special guests (hopefully people like director Tetsuya Nomura, composer Yoko Shimamuro and some of the developers and voice actors) and new footage of gameplay in a talk show like atmosphere.
In Kingdom Hearts 3 Sora returns and is joined by Donald Duck, King Mickey, Goofy, and Riku in searching for the seven guardians of light and the “Key to Return Hearts”, in an attempt to stop Master Xehanort’s plan to balance the light and darkness.
